He Left the Tomb
Why would the Son of God, who had just conquered death, bother to pause and leave His tomb tidy?
The Gospel of John 20: 7 tells us that the cloth which had been placed over Jesus’ face was not just thrown aside, but was neatly folded. Why?
According to the tradition of that day, after a servant set the dinner table, he would wait, just out of sight, until the family had finished eating. If one of them was done, they would rise, wad up the napkin and toss it onto the table -- the signal to clear their setting. However, if they got up from the table, folded their napkin and laid it beside their plate, the message was "I'm not finished yet."
It quietly advised, "I'm coming back!"
